Backstage at Alexander McQueen Spring 2012
The headpieces are exquisite. Every little piece is visually satisfying. The silhouette are still encompassing defined shoulders, waist and length, classic Alexander McQueen.
From pastel dresses to exaggerated black leather playsuits, they were certainly a high drama involved.
Although Sarah Burton explained that it was all about “femininity and womanhood” and that it “wasn’t really meant to be fetishistic,” we can see a lot of real stunners, almost haute couture pieces I would say. Looks like it takes a lot of hours and hard work creating this collection, I wonder how she does it. Definitely beyond my expectations.
Sarah Burton's third collection for Alexander McQueen is spectacular and fantastical (you can insert more adjectives here).
Oh the last gown will make extremely stunning editorials! Was Daphne Guinness there to watch the show?
